MontanaLawHelp.org has general legal information for a variety of civil topics. You can find articles, forms, courts, where to find legal help, and more. If you need help finding what you need, use the LiveHelp button.
MontanaLawHelp.org is a project of Montana Legal Services Association and several collaborators, including the Legal Services Corporation, the Montana Justice Foundation, the Montana Credit Unions for Community Development, State of Montana Law Library, the State Bar of Montana, and the Montana Supreme Court.
The Court Self-Help Law Program is a free service provided by the Montana Supreme Court to assist people with civil, non-criminal legal problems. The Court Help Program has grown and now operates full time self-help centers in six counties as well as many self help stations and kiosks throughout the State of Montana.
The State Bar of Montana offers a free, non-profit, Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) for the community. It’s an outstanding resource when you feel you need an attorney but you’re not sure who to turn to.
The mission of the State Law Library is to provide access to legal information consistent with the research needs and concerns of Montana’s courts, legislature, state officers and employees, members of the bar of the Supreme Court of Montana, and members of the general public. The library selects, acquires, and maintains legal resources.
MLSA partners with the Montana Supreme Court / Court Help Program to provide legal kiosks at various locations across the state. The kiosks provide links to legal information, forms, and resources to help users find answers to their legal problems. Users can search the links on their own or ask for an online “LiveHelp” operator to help them find information via live chat. LiveHelp only provides legal information, never legal advice.
The kiosks are located in:
Clerk of 16th Judicial District Court Office / Miles City
Clerk of 10th Judicial District Court Office / Lewistown
Richland County Public Library / Sidney
Roosevelt County Public Library / Wolf Point
Bitterroot Public Library / Hamilton
North Lake County Public Library / Polson
Silver-Bow County Public Library / Butte
MLSA Office / Helena
Kiosks are also being set up in Park, Dawson, and Hill Counties.
